Trailblazer Firearms announced this week that they’ve sold more than 6,000 LifeCard pistols to date, proving that there is a market for carry tools not much larger than a stack of credit cards.
“We reached our first year’s sales goals and then some,” said Aaron Voigt, founder and president of Trailblazer Firearms, in a press release.
“What started out as my obsession to come up with an Altoid tin sized pistol has taken on a life of its own,” Voigt continued. “While we are genuinely pleased about our sales numbers, we are firmly committed to continuing to produce a high quality little .22 and refuse to compromise on our production or materials, so we apologize if it takes a bit longer to get your pistol, but we are certain you will love it when it’s in your hand.”
Weighing less than seven ounces the LifeCard is a folding, single-shot pistol chambered in .22LR. Clay got one in for review last year and while he wasn’t ready to give up his Springfield XD-S, he thought it would make a nice addition to one’s concealed carry loadout as a backup gun. MSRP for the LifeCard is $399.00. I’ve seen them for sale on GunsAmerica in the $350 range.
Congrats to Trailblazer Firearms on its early success. Looking forward to seeing what they have in store for the future.
